They recently dropped the analogy section from the SAT, which is sort of a shame for John Dunleavy, the organizer of the NYC St. Patrick's Day parade. If they'd dropped it years ago, Dunleavy might have scored better. Dunleavy, you see, has a problem with analogies.

When asked why he refused to let the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization (ILGO) march under its own banner, he said, "If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow neo-Nazis into their parade? If African-Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?"

Um, gee, John, maybe not. But maybe they do let gay Israelis or gay black people march in their parades.

Or maybe I missed the manifesto in which the ILGO swore to massacre and terrorize straight Irish people.

In the same analogy tutorial, Dunleavy also asked, "If we let the ILGO in, is it the Irish Prostitute Association next?"
